The Internet’s Little Shithead: Skatoulaki/Skatoolaki

I know this is a bit premature, and I really should wait until everything is done and in place - but I'm too excited! I finally have my own little space on the web! That's right, last night I became the proud owner of skatoolaki.com (and also skatoulaki.com b/c I couldn't decide on which spelling I wanted and, really, the beer made me do it). I'm in the process of moving my many sites & things over - so things are a bit messy over there if you happen by to check it out. I'll let you know when it's done, but I just couldn't keep it to myself for that long!

Why skatoolaki, or even skatoulaki, for that matter? Well years ago I found the name "Skatoulaki" in one of my two "writer's bibles" (these being Roget's Super Theasuarus and Phoenix McFarland's The Complete Book of Magical Names - no writer should be without these). According to McFarland, "skatoulaki" is Greek for, seriously, "little shithead".

"Shithead" is, to me, a term of endearment - sort of in the vein of "you loveable, goofy oaf". It's someone who's inherently good but also naughty in a sly & sneaky sort of way. Don't ask me how 'shithead' came to mean this to me exactly, but it did. So ever since I saw that name, one of the online moniker's I've used is "skatoulaki", because it's kind of cool. If ever I couldn't use it b/c it was already taken, I'd change the spelling to "skatoolaki". In fact, if you do a Google search for 'skatoolaki', everything that comes up is my stuff. So both names/words were kind of mine - hence they both became the "address" of my webspace. I am the "little shithead" of the Internet. Er, I suppose that's something to be proud of... *scratches head*

I'm sure all of you found that extremely stimulating.

It's been a weird day - I spent most of it with my dearest friend & soulmate, tried to reconcile some things with someone I am obviously no longer friends with who all of a sudden got really creepy on me, and am about to spend the rest of the evening with my bestest friend since Kindergarten. All when all I wanted to do was be left alone to work on uploading everything to my new webspace. Well, that's become the story of my life lately - no me-time.

Still, it will be a nice evening. Baret's about to run out and fetch somy yummy Hooters' wings and curley fries for us to munch on, and no matter what else is going on in life I have the ultimate and ever-so-rewarding satisfaction of knowing that today is the first LSU game, and it does not affect me in any way whatsoever. (In case you don't remember, I used to live, essentially, right next door to LSU and game days equaled hell on earth - see last year's post on the first game of the season for reference).

Company's here. 'Til later...this 'little shithead' is signing out..
